The Way Home is a short fantasy story about a young deer separated from his herd after a storm. While searching for his family he comes across a fire spirit who is similarly lost. The two of them form an alliance to find their respective homes.

The Way Home is a textless story. Dialogue is displayed with images rather than words, so characters express their intent rather than their specific meaning. The reader has to work a bit to interpret what is going on. In theory, no matter what language you speak, you can understand The Way Home!

This comic was created by group brainstorming, establishing the host site, then sketching out the storyline. The final version was made using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.
